TRENTON — Police are working to determine if faulty brakes led to a 4-year-old boy being crushed when the car he was inside got rear-ended.

Jennelle Montgomery, 45, of Trenton crashed into a car parked on Perry Street on June 6,  police told NJ.com. The boy was not in a car seat at the time of impact. He was taken to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia with a fractured skull and leg, according to the report.

Montgomery was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and causing injury while driving with a suspended license.

The vehicle is being inspected to determine why Montgomery lost control of the car.
